A most excellent throwback to exploitation B movies
This is one of the best movies ever. Yes, it's not for everyone, and yes there will be people that hate it, but it's pure nirvana for fans of low-budget, old-school, exploitation flicks. If you like the kind of stuff Something Weird Video puts out, if you like Troma flicks, If you liked The Halfway House then you should be grooving on this one.
The title says it all, there's a werewolf and she's in women's prison. Fans of American Werewold in London will find something to appreciate here, but I won't spoil it. Fans of nudie exploit movies will be happy as well as there is a plentiful display of female attributes.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Bernadette Perez who was in a few of the older flicks from The Asylum in which she supplied some of the nudity. Sadly she remained clothed in this (WTF is up with that anyway?).
I have only one real negative criticism of the film, and that is that it didn't have a shower scene. Every fan of women in prison (WIP) flicks knows that a shower scene is one of the most important scenes in the genre and so I felt a bit let down. I will mostly overlook the transgression because of a lot of assorted nudity throughout but it's the only thing holding it back from a 10 for me.
The gore is mostly pretty good and plentiful, though low-budget and cheesy. There was a little wince-worthy cgi at the end which would have been much better as practical f/x, but for the most part I liked the gore.
So for folks who like this kind of stuff (and you know who you are), then you will want to see this post haste as it is one of the finest example of the genre in years.
